of changes he may bring. barry two weeks into his reign, pope francis, as he celebrated his first easter mass, is putting distance between himself and his predecessor. for one thing, the new pope probably would not like the term "reign." he already has done several things to show he's against the imperial nature of the papacy. he's indicated, for example, that he prefers the title of bishop of rome. simpler and less majestic than pope benedict xvi or his holiness. there are plenty of other signs of a different approach. the broad smile and the wave as if he's identifying with specific people in the crowds and the very conscience effort shown once again on easter sunday to reach out and touch the faithful. benedict xvi is still alive and watching from afar but with each move, no matter how symbolic, francis seemed happy to abandon the austere and distant approach of his predecessor. if differences have come up between the two popes, it's not been before the cameras. in addition to their face to face meeting, they've had several phone conversations including one this week that the vatican spoke

and that has changed particularly in the current year where revenues are not sufficient to make up that gap and as a result, the balance goes to the general fund. i think it's worth noting in the several years we're in the deepest deficit for the city. a lot of our collective energy went to minimizing the service reductions that were required to balance the city's deficit but as a result base we focused on that rather than an redirecting fund to solve this deficit you can see it's grown significantly over the last several years we're now at an inimbalance of $14 million. like every health care company in the system we've got medical costs in the country and our city are raising faster than they're supposed to shows up in our labor costs and that growth in our costs means that each year between about $130 million if we do nothing so the deficit. you're seeing in the current year as we go on through time will be a remaining issue for us to deal with cleric as a city and think impact on the general fund. a couple of the major items >> just a quick question. do you have another quick copy of t
